Finally got a chance to report on my trip to the Chickohomony river. We fished from May 3 to the 9th. Had a grea time, Me and my son both got new personal best. Not huge but both were over 26 lbs. Thats big to us. We got a ton of small cats from 4 to 16 lbs, and two about 20 lbs. My son also got a huge Gar and a 14lb. Bowfin. We used frozen hering but fresh bluegill and white perch worked best. A great trip The Rivers Rest is a good Place to stay and launch. Had a great time and are planning another trip for next Year.
